Brian Krantz Sees Jesus Christ In Drop Cloth He Uses While Painting

Move over Shroud of Turin, there's a new theological tarp in town.

What looks like a paint-stained cloth to some is nothing less than the glorious image of Jesus Christ to others.

A Massachusetts man says that when he recently looked at a drop cloth he's used for years for house-painting he found the image of the Christian messiah exiting a tomb staring back at him, WCVB reported.

"It's not something that was intentional. It's totally wild," Brian Krantz of Saugus, according to Wicked Local Saugus. "It leaves me speechless."

Krantz, 38, is a former altar boy from the Irish Catholic stronghold of South Boston.

Earlier this month, he unfurled the cloth to prevent any mess during another job when he came face-to-face with the godly image, WHDH reported.

The Christlike figure is 4 1/2 feet tall and 3 feet wide.

The sacred sight was so staggering that Krantz and his buddy decided to take an early lunch, he told Wicked Local Saugus.

"I can't deny this," Krantz said. "This is what it is. It looks like Jesus Christ."

As a lasting tribute, Krantz said he'll frame the cloth.
